Excellent question, Eden.

I am Rah. Here me roar.

Who I am today is shaped by my yesterday, but I’m not letting that shape my tomorrow. On a good day I really believe that sentence, but on bad days that sentence is really hard to hang on to.

I am always trying to define myself. I am surrounded by diverse role models who I aspire to be like. I witness many character traits that I aspire to avoid like the plague.

I only learned in the last few years that it’s okay to be ME, warts and all. Until then I was ashamed of who I was and always felt like I had to apologise for who I was. And you know what? I was wrong. I am loved regardless of my faults and failures.

I am the concrete doughnut that I keep on my desk

Unfinished by Will Coles

Everyone is always on a journey to find their role, their purpose, themselves. Don’t ever stop that journey.

If you’ve ever watched Fight Club, you’ll know this quote from Tyler Durden

I say never be complete,
I say stop being perfect,
I say let’s evolve,
let the chips fall where they may.

Maybe I don’t know who I am. And that’s okay.
